Government clarifies that cinemas and theatres can hold up to 50 people

Two days following the updates on Covid-19 restrictions, the government has clarified that up to 50 people can go to cinemas and theatres once protective measures such as social distancing are maintained.

This comes after many people were left baffled by the new restrictions made on Wednesday night.

On that night, the Department of Health stated that no more than six people could attend indoor cultural events, and 15 people for outdoor events.

The clarification was made on Thursday morning when the government deemed cinemas, theatres and museums controlled environments.

However, individual groups must be limited to six people and must be from no more than three households.
